Do all 6sj7gt have mesh or just certain brands?  I know Tung-sol does, and I've seen others with it, but didn't know if it was standard or an option.

 

Also I found a 1950s tube tester in my uncles' basement.  Unfortunately there's no octal slocket being from the 50s, but I'll post a picture of the EF80s on it next time I'm over to show they're still good (or to see if they actually are bad, but since one adapter was working, I think the tubes are ok.).

 

I have two pair of them.  Assuming they test good I'd like to sell at least one pair.  I may hang onto the other pair as I'd like to rewire the bad adapter sometime in the future.  If someone really wanted the second pair, though, I can't use it at the moment so I'd be willing to part with them.

I've been using a 15w soldering iron for PCB work.  Considering the mass of the wire plus with the size and heat shielding on the wirewound resistor, will this be hot enough for will I need to get a 25w iron? 

 

Also what size solder should I use for this, as I assume I need something larger than the .032" I've been using on PCBs?  My friend is probably going to help me with this and has a lot more experience, but just in case his schedule is full and I end up doing it myself, I want to make sure I get it right.  Thanks.

No doubt the review of this amp is OTT but QC seems to be an issue based on it being raised by members in this thread frown.gif

Well that's mostly because yuking was "out" for a while. I hope it'll improve again now he's back.

How difficult is it to tune both the volumes? Are there notches?

No there are not and it's very easy, never ever bothered me. It only has advantages imo

How is the LF339 with the HD800? I am currently enjoying my LF339 with HD650, looking to pull the trigger for HD800 sometime soon. Any impressions?

Though I answered your question in this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/643439/denver-nc-meet-impressions-january-20-2013-aka-charlotte-area-meet/105#post_9127500 I guess my response was disregarded, despite being an owner of both pieces of equipment you're inquiring about.  Oh well, hope someone else can grant you the answer you wish to hear.

And a true answer it was. I didn't like the HD700 either with the 339. The Bottlehead Crack however is excellent for the HD700 and HD800

Whoops, sorry my bad. I forgot i read any response from that thread. I didn't check it out until you pointed it out. I'm sorry about this. 
What about T1 has anybody tried this combo? I want to purchase a higher class of headphone but, would still like to use LF339 as my AMP. I enjoyed the HE500 LF339 combo but, looking for another option.
Thank you for the answer vc1187, and i apologize once more for not regarding your opinion as i have not checked back on that thread.

No problem, I just get irritated with people that ask a question on a thread, and then ask it on another thread because it was an answer that they did not want to hear.  Doesn't seem like that was your intent, so it's all good smily_headphones1.gif.

 

The HE-500 + LF339 combination is the best I have heard when it comes to the LF339.  To give you perspective on the background of higher end headphones I've heard paired with the LF339, I've heard HD800, LCD-2, LCD-3, HE-500, and HE-6.  Have not heard the T1s ever on any setup, so I can't help ya there.

Out of all of the headphones I have heard on the LF339, I'd rank the top three as: HE-500, very closely followed by the HD650, then followed with a bit of distance by the LCD-2.

 

What type of sound signature are you ultimately looking for?  It's pretty important to know this before you choose to venture any further, as it will save you a lot of money and time as far as buying and re-selling go.

I too quite enjoy the HE500 and LF339 combo as if heard it numerous times but o dont know it seems it didn't click with me, but since i am changing my DAC soon too i might give it a go.
Ultimately i would like that romantic vibe that the LF339 & HD650 produces, but with a wider soundstage faster pace and sparkly treble. Thanks for the help mate smily_headphones1.gif
